I somehow managed to uber **** my htc while trying to root it

It has no kernel and rom installed and no backups were made..
I'm able to get into bootloader and use fastboot

On the Recovery screen I have 3 faults that need to be addressed being;
*** TAMPERED ***
*** RELOCKED ***
*** Security Warning ***

the info of the phone itself is
M7_UL PVT SHIP S-ON RH
HBOOT-1.55.0000
RADIO-4A.21.3263.04
OpenDSP-v32.120.274.0909
OS-3.62.841.1
eMMC-boot 2038MB
Oct 18 2013,00:14:40.0

When I reboot the device it only gives me a glimps of the HTC logo then back to the white screen

What would I need to do to fix it?
Thanks!

Please post the output of ''fastboot getvar all'' minus IMEI/SN. What recovery version are you using and what rom were you using? Did you erased cache?

You can simply unlock bootloader and flash a rom with twrp or flash a guru reset rom.

  • unlock bootloader from htcdev.com
  • flash latest twrp
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery <name_of_file>.img
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
  • download this guru reset rom save it to your adb/fastboot folder and push it to your sdcard:
    enter twrp recovery
    Code:
    adb push <name_of_rom>.zip /sdcard/
  • in twrp select install and select the guru reset rom.
  • follow graphical installer instructions

I unlocked the device with htcdev and flashed latest twrp

When it came to pushing the guru zip file across with adb it completed but when I accessed it in TWRP installation in sdcard i received this as an error:

Updating partition details...
E:Unable to mount '/cache'
E:Unable to mount '/cache'
E:Unable to mount '/cache'
Error flashing zip '/sdcard/guru_rom.zip'
Updating partition details...
E:unable to mount '/cache'

Also tried to adb sideload it but received "error: closed" after about 5 seconds
